Make sure you have permission to use the device... someone here may tell us how.

perhaps like this...

#Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0bda:8771 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
chown -R glenn:glenn /dev/bus/usb/003/002

#2 Re: Installation » SOLVED: Devuan's "systemctl daemon-reload" » 2021-01-08 22:20:55

I use open-rc and I am able to control services with "service $service start|stop|restart|status".

Not all services are the same, ymmv.

rc-update and rc-service come in handy too.

Thank you Ralph, that made one error has go away.
plasma bluetooth setting gui, had a "click here yo FIX" kind of message everytime I looked at it, it's gone now.
The taskbar bt icon says it's paired, has a mac address, adaptor name and Trusted.
I'll reboot the system later on and check it again. Thanks.

#4 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Realtek Bluetooth 5.0 usb dongle firmware » 2021-01-07 12:59:41

I managed to use that as a hack, to copy the binary(s) to /lib/firmware/rtl_bt/

And I see it load, but now I have a problem with the hand-shake and the P7 headphones pairing, but the bluetooth app on the plasma taskbar says it is paired and it is trusted.

I'll keep working on this later... thank you for your assistance, I got a long way from where I was by myself, much appreciated.

#6 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Realtek Bluetooth 5.0 usb dongle firmware » 2021-01-07 07:28:50

Thank you Ralph, I'll have a go at it and get back with some good news I hope.

Thank you for your reply, I already have it for my wifi card. I did a search of the system for "RTL8761B_FW.bin" without the caps, came up with nothing.

Hi I have recieved a Realtek Bluetooth 5.0 usb dongle today for some headphones that require bt ver 5.0

I see a message about missing realtek firmware rtl8761b-fw (RTL_BT RTL8761B_FW.bin)

Anyone know where I can get this binary file?

I had a bit of a look and it seems there is a working version (AUR) but I'm not sure what to do with it.

Any guidance is appreciated

regards Glenn

Im strictly against being monitored, massive invasion of privacy.

Yes, but I can't help but think that it , the surveillance state starts under the rule of law, and the private sector takes it to the limit and then the gubbamnt taps into their systems under the guise of Public Safety.

#11 Re: Devuan Derivatives » Init question » 2021-01-05 10:56:41

My 2c, I can't tell the difference. I can easily edit what runs to stop things I don't require with Openrc. But I have no technical knowledge of the differences.

#12 Re: Off-topic » (privacy) surveillance state? » 2021-01-04 22:10:04

You don't have to be a conspiracy theorist to acknowledge what the governments keep secret, using software and devices to surveil the populace for threats the private sector is using as human management tools to track efficency. Big Brother is already here, slowly, sometimes quickly removing our freedom of choice.

Hi, I'm using linux-image 5.9 kernel and the nvidia proprietary driver is installed as well.

Kernel 5.9 also doesn't work with NVIDIA blobs...

I use modeset.nouveau=0 on the grub2 command line (/etc/default/grub)

 GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="nokmsboot nouveau.modeset=0 console=tty12 vga=794" 

inxi gives...

#21 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Obmenu-generator problem » 2020-12-06 03:11:38

Hi, What are the permissions for the location "/home/groucho/.config/obmenu-generator"?

maybe the installer has left the permission to write as root or admin only.

if so, you could try as root to make the location available to write by the user groucho with

chown -hR groucho:groucho /home/groucho/.config/obmenu-generator


chmod -R 755 /home/groucho/.config/obmenu-generator

Then try again.

I hope this helps. :-)

#22 Re: Other Issues » Does apt switch to mirrors automatically when performing an upgrade? » 2020-12-02 22:13:46

The only time I have trouble connecting to the/a mirror is when the repos are being updated, just recently like for kernel 5.9 :-), But I check nearly everyday and notice sometimes for a few days at most the repo is unreachable. When this happens I switch to the main one and not the local mirror for a while.

#23 Re: Installation » Beowulf kernel question » 2020-12-02 01:33:50

if you use the meta (package) you'll need the version specific (package) too.

#24 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Thunar folder and file ordering » 2020-11-15 02:34:41

I have had a similar problem, iirc it was the permissions for the settings file would not allow change. ymmv

I don't know about FreeBSD but for OpenBSD you just need to create a partition of type a6 (in fdisk) or a600 (in gdisk) and the installer recognises it and offers to just use that and leave the other partitions alone.
